I spent the entire night before her birthday baking her a cake and decorating the kitchen LOL Surprise theme ( FYI they DO NOT make LOL Surprise decorations! Shout out to my co workers Jackie & Nellie for helping me print out and hand color the decorations.) When Ivy woke up she was so surprised she loved it. I had laid out a few LOL Surprise themed gifts for her too. She really loved that.
Once we all got dressed we headed to McDonalds play place for a little birthday lunch with friends and family. Ivy’s Nani (grandma) planned the lunch. She brought decorations and cupcakes. The kids had happy meals and played for about a hour. We sung happy birthday to Ivy then headed to the ice skating rink for some cooler fun.
Pulling up to the ice skating rink with the family I did not know what to expect I had never been ice skating before in my life. Oh and guess what I didn’t plan to! But oh boy was I in for a treat. Once we had helped the girls get their ice skating outfits and skates on it was time to get on the ice. Yikes! it was so cold.
Lucky for us we had brought the girls jackets and even packed sweat pants in the diaper bag. The kids didn’t seem to mind the cold as much as the adults did, they we’re just ready to have some fun. Once Ivy and Aria got on the ice they just stood there. Ha, ha I honestly did not know what I expected? I guess I expected them to get out there and do flips or something. But nevertheless my poor babies we’re just standing there lost and cold. My husband is still recovering from knee surgery so I had no choice but to go rent some skates and get on the ice with them.

I got skates..ice skating was fun! It wasn’t very hard at all. Once on the ice I pushed the girls in little sleds and even held Ivy’s hand skating. Aria refused to get on ice if she wasn’t on the sled, she was way to scared. But my little Ivy she was amazing! At first she was scared to get on the ice too, without a sled or something to hold onto. But she soon broke out of all her fears she started skating
After a few hours on the ice we went home and celebrate with cake and ice cream and let Ivy open up all her gifts. When the day was over Ivy looked at me and said
